REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwire - Oct. 18, 2012) - For the tenth consecutive year, Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is honoured to be among the top 50 Best Employers in Canada.
FCC achieved a ranking of fifth on the Best Employers in Canada list which was published today in Maclean's magazine. The annual list is based on the results of the 2012 Aon Hewitt survey that gauges the level of employee engagement in participating companies.
"Making the Best Employers in Canada list is rewarding, but it's really a side benefit of the survey," said FCC President and CEO Greg Stewart. "More importantly, the survey recognizes the significant contributions of our employees toward shaping their own work environment. It provides us with a valuable opportunity to listen and act on their ideas on how we can improve as an employer of choice."
"FCC has an internal culture that is unique," said Greg Honey, Senior Vice President, Human Resources. "Guided by the values of trust, respect and integrity, employees work together in partnership to better serve customers and the Agriculture industry as a whole."
The survey helps guide FCC in making changes that attract and retain talented and dedicated employees. As a self-sustaining federal Crown corporation, FCC offers employees competitive salaries and benefits, as well as training to help them achieve their full potential.
"FCC is guided by leaders at every level of our organization - not just leadership from the top," Honey said. "Our employees are our ambassadors and they believe we are making a difference to the agriculture community, our customers and rural communities."
FCC has more than 1,500 employees working from coast to coast - in the corporate office in Regina and in over 100 district offices - from Atlantic Canada to BC.
As Canada's leading agriculture lender, FCC is advancing the business of agriculture. With a healthy portfolio of more than $24 billion and 19 consecutive years of portfolio growth, FCC is strong and stable - committed to serving the industry through all cycles. FCC provides financing, insurance, software, learning programs and other business services to producers, agribusinesses and agri-food operations. FCC employees are passionate about agriculture and committed to the success of customers and the industry. As one of Imagine Canada's Caring Companies, FCC gives one per cent of its profits to charities and non-profit organizations. For more information, visit www.fcc.ca.
